The First Blurb for WHITESANDS is in!

Blurbs, for those of you who might not know, are the quotes you often see on book covers, praising the book in question, the author or previous books.

There is a lot of work that goes into getting not just blurbs but the right blurbs, It wouldn’t help much to have a Stephen King blurb on a guide to walking around Bristol, nor would a David Attenborough blurb help sell a queer time-travel space opera.

You want a blurb from someone relevant to the genre.

Here’s an example of what I mean, from the back cover of Sing, Unburied, Sing.

And I am lucky enough to have one from Richard Thomas.

Richard Thomas is known to many in the horror and thriller community. He has a great number of books and anthologies out, he writes for Litreactor, and teaches over at Storyville.

Richard Thomas is the award-winning author of seven books: three novels—Disintegration and Breaker (Penguin Random House Alibi), as well as Transubstantiate (Otherworld Publications); three short story collections—Staring into the Abyss (Kraken Press), Herniated Roots (Snubnose Press), and Tribulations (Cemetery Dance); and one novella in The Soul Standard (Dzanc Books).

WHITESANDS is out in September, and this Richard Thomas blurb will grace the book:

Richard Thomas is a fantastic writer and I am thrilled and honored and humbled that he was willing to blurb Whitesands.
